Center for Multicultural Education

Comedian Felipe Esparza

Comedian Felipe Esparza, winner of "Last Comic Standing," will perform. He’s best known for his raw, real-life comedy, irreverent on-stage persona, wild hair and his often-imitated phrase, “What‘s up fool?“ Other TV credits include: ABC‘s “Comics Unleashed,“ Showtime‘s “Comics Without Borders,“ BET‘s “Comic View,“ and “One Mic Stand,“ and Galavision‘s “Que Locos“ (where he holds the title of most appearances by any comedian). Doors open at 7:15 p.m.; seating is first-come, first-served.

Theatre Performance: "Mother Tongue"

The Center for Multicultural Education will host the play Mother Tongue as part of Asian American Heritage Month. Mother Tongue, presented by hereandnow theater company, is a collection of tales that explores and celebrates the traditions, the roles and the experiences of women of color, and how they are changing in this ever-increasing modern world. Evolved from a lack of focus on this often overlooked, "minority-within-a-minority," this educational and entertaining performance examines the challenges and triumphs that women of color deal with on a daily basis.

Consent and Gender Workshop

Workshop times: 5PM & 7PM
